Good print & Sound.
It's a fine romp of a story. Young Jack Palance carries the movie through with his strange personality and trademark mannerisms. Constance Smith is beautiful and perfectly cast. Rhys Williams plays the same character he always did and did well. Mrs. Harley is portrayed by Frances Bavier aka Aunt Bea from the Andy Griffith Show. But that is not Judy Dench playing Daisy the maid, that is actress Tita Phillips.
Thank you, IA, for another good one.

A waste of time
I suffered through this, despite Dr Feel Rotten's warning.
The ending looks as though the producers ran out of money, stopping the story before it could achieve resolution.
Had I paid money to see this film, I would have been very angry indeed.
The ripper was never identified and certainly wasn't among the theater goers and if he was he wasn't Slade although there was one person Sadler thought to have been the ripper, but was later released for complete lack of evidence.
This is a complete work of fiction..
Notice Judy Dench as the maid Daisy? It was neither Palance's nor Dench's best work, but still Ok as a movie..I guess.
